research on the genetic and environmental causes of autism, he added.

"It's concerning that there continues to be a steady increase in autism spectrum disorders," said Dr. Andrew Adesman, chief of developmental & behavioral pediatrics at the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York, in New Hyde Park.

Although there are some children with autism who can show significant gains there are many who don't, which highlights the long-term impact of the problem on both individuals and society, Adesman added.

"This is a significant problem from a public health standpoint," he said. "There is a need for parents and clinicians to identify children with autism spectrum disorder as early as possible in the hopes that it would maximize children's developmental outcome."

Looking for the Warning Signs of Autism

According to Dr. Rebecca Landa, director of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, signs of concern include:

  • Child rarely smiles when approached by caregivers.
  • Rarely imitates sounds and movements others make.
  • Delayed or infrequent babbling.
  • Doesn't consistently respond to his or her name.
  • Doesn't gesture by 10 months.
  • Shows poor eye contact.
  • Doesn't seeks attention often.
  • Stiffens arms, hands or legs, or has unusual body movements like rotating the hands on the wrists, uncommon postures or other repetitive behaviors.
  • Doesn't not reach toward you when you reach to pick him or her up.
  • Delays in motor development, including delayed rolling over, pushing up and crawling.
